Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1953 - Two marines at the Quantico Marine Corps base in Virginia observed the landing of a round UFO that throbbed and pulsated, emitting red lights. (Sources: Harold Wilkins, Flying Saucers Uncensored, p. 210; Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia, A Century of Landings, case 122).
1954 - At ten minutes after midnight, four men in a forest in Camaqua, Brazil in the State of Rio Grande do Sul, saw a 30-meter wide disc stop and hover silently one meter above the ground. A human looking occupant got out of the craft and walked around it with a lamp of some kind. (Source: Felipe Machado Carrion, Phenomenes Spatiaux, December 1971, p. 32).
1958 - Two men in their late 40s, Srs. Salas and Acosta, watched a cylindrical object with a pointed end shoot straight up in the sky at 11:55 p.m. in Umbrete, Sevilla province, Spain. A moment later, when one of them opened the door of the truck in which they had been driving, a second object-two meters long-shot up from the ground. (Source: Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos, FSR, July-August 1971, p. 11).
On this evening in 1971 in Tulancingo, Mexico in the State of Hidalgo, Sra. Ochones saw a domed disc land 50 meters away, making a “sizzling” sound. A door opened in the craft and several beings emerged from a red illuminated interior. They wore white coveralls with tight-fitting hoods, and spent a short period of time collecting soil samples. The ground marks at the landing site included 3 leg marks and 2 skids. (Source: Saga 1973 UFO Special, p. 32).
In Veteli, Finland in 1972 a dark form appeared at 7:30 p.m. and a “force field” threw a girl a distance of three meters. Another girl witnessed the event. Five hours later, at 11:30 p.m. on a highway in Hinojos, Spain a fiery square-shaped flying object flew close to the ground and lit up the surrounding terrain. The headlights in two cars, carrying a total of four witnesses, died. The car with the gasoline-powered engine also stalled, but the diesel-powered engine of the other car kept running. (Sources: Lumieres dans la Nuit, April 1975 and issue 133).
1973 - At 7:00 a.m. on highway 347 between Lens and La Bassee in Pas-de-Calais, France Mr. Liefooghe had a close encounter with two UFOs. He came upon a disc-shaped object on the road, and he watched a cigar-shaped UFO land in a vertical position. He did not stay around but came back later with investigators, who found ground marks and small footprints. At five a.m. CST another cigar-shaped object with two small wings approached a home in La Grange, Illinois rapidly from the west. The object was self-luminous and appeared solid, and passed low over the treetops. At 4:20 p.m. Pacific Standard Time a photograph of a luminous UFO was taken in Spokane, Washington and the event was witnessed by two families. On a farm east of Medicine Hat, Alberta an eight-foot tall giant ran beside a truck at speeds up to 60 mph at 10:30 p.m. Mountain Standard Time. The being touched the hood and roof of the truck before being out-distanced.

In the early morning hours of this day in 1978, at shortly after midnight, a famous motion picture film was taken by a news crew while flying off the eastern coast of South Island, New Zealand near the town of Kaikoura. The luminous UFO was seen by everyone on board the aircraft and was tracked by radar at the same time. It was somewhat cone shaped, and was not a Japanese shrimp fishing boat, as claimed by debunkers. (Sources: International UFO Reporter, July 1979, p. 6; APRO Bulletin, May 1980, p. 2).
1978 - There were several other UFO reports from around the world on this day, from England and Scotland, Italy, Switzerland, and Florida. In Posada, Italy at one o’clock in the morning, a 3-meter in diameter glowing sphere appeared over a marsh. It had dark triangular spots that moved back and forth on the surface of the object. In Bayford, England Mr. and Mrs. Mason sighted a cigar-shaped object at 7:00 p.m. moving silently through the sky from the west to the east. The UFO had a long body with lots of tiny lights. Before losing sight of it two strong lights came on, one in the middle and one at the end. At the same time a silver triangle crossed the sky from west to east in Carlisle, England in Cumbria. Two minutes later a triangle with a grayish hue crossed the sky from west to east in Edinborough, Scotland, and three minutes after that another huge triangle was seen flying in the same direction over Hull, England.

Mansell, Awareness, April 1979, p. 12).
1978 - One hour after the multiple UFO flyovers in Great Britain, at three p.m. EST three men saw a silver disc hovering only one block away from one of their residences in Homestead, Florida. Mr. Betancourt, age 37, described the UFO as being between 40-50 feet in diameter and having no visible engine or wings, and making no noise. It hovered over a neighbor’s backyard for about 30 seconds before flying off. At 10:00 p.m. European time in Zermatt, Switzerland two people witnessed a luminous round object over the alpine glacier, brightly illuminating the ice. Later that night, at 2:30 a.m. the next morning, a big electrical power outage occurred in the city. (Sources: Dade News-Leader, January 3, 1979; Larry Hatch, U computer database, case 13046).
1982 - In Kent Cliffs, New York in the lower Hudson River Valley a police officer and his wife spotted a delta-shaped UFO making a faint, low frequency hum at 11:54 p.m. The colored lights on the object switched off and three bright white lights lit up the ground. He was able to shoot some movie film of the UFO, but the images are of low quality. (Source: J. Allen Hynek & Phil Imbrogno, Night Siege: The Hudson Valley UFO Sightings, p. 6).
1984 - In Level Green, Pennsylvania in the UFO hotspot of Westmoreland County, two residents of the community heard a tapping sound on one of their house windows at 6:10 p.m. They saw what looked like an eye-like orb peering in through the window. It turn and flew away, but repeated the performance one more time. (Source: MUFON UFO Journal, June 1985).
1992 - A woman walking outside her home in San Antonio, Texas saw a huge, gray metallic disc drop straight down from the clouds. It made a buzzing noise. It altered its shaped to that of a sphere with four legs and landed. Under hypnosis it was revealed that she experienced an abduction aboard the craft, in which she was given a medical exam by pale, human-looking men. (Sources: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1992, case #1678, citing Karla Turner; Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue 316).
1993 - An object that looked like a globe on a pedestal followed two people in a car for several kilometers near the shoreline in Yanchep, Western Australia at around one o’clock in the morning, before flying off. The same or a similar object was seen in Brazil that day. At 1:40 a.m. local time a huge, silent, light bulb shaped UFO with bright lights and a flat bottom, flew over the city of Quixada, Ceara State, Brazil. (Sources: UFO Newsclipping Service, March 1994; Boletim CEPEX).
2000 - A bedroom visitation of possibly a holographic figure occurred at four o’clock in the morning in Kingsville, Texas. The witness reported that a humanoid figure and a blue light passed through a skylight and materialized inside the bedroom. The figure and the blue light disappeared at the same time. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2000, case #3516, citing Filer’s Files).
2001 - In the evening of this day in Pasadena, Texas a man reported seeing a huge rectangular object, an estimated 300 meters in length, about ten miles away. The UFO hung vertically in the sky at only a few hundred feet altitude, and had several white lights inside a red rectangular outer rim. (Source: George A. Filer, MUFON UFO Journal, February 2002, p. 14).
